I've always been a bit nervous about the contour craze just because I'm not one to do a face full of makeup, but today I can say I've officially joined the contour crew. From highlights to chiseled cheekbones, I'm in it to win it with this new makeup phenomena.
Last week, I ordered a bronzer from MAC thinking that it would help give some definition to my face, but to my surprise it didn't even make a dent into my skin tone. Thankfully, I work steps away from the Harold Square Macy's, so getting a replacement would be easy, or so I thought. Walking up to one of the MAC reps, the first thing I was told was that I don't need a bronzer, but instead should go for a contour. The rep was nice enough to show me the newest Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Cream Kit, despite him working exclusively for MAC.
I was pleasantly surprised that only a minimal amount of product was needed to create an amazing natural look! The cream contour and highlights in Anastasia's new palette are not only light weight, but are also build-able for those girls who'd like a little more coverage. And at $40, I think this is one of my best makeup investments this year.
